Waterways of Cheshire Itinerary
Sunday We depart Cornwall in the morning and travel to Mold arriving at our hotel in the evening.
Monday This morning we take to the canal for a cruise through the beautiful Vale of Llangollen and across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, or ‘Stream in the Sky’. An interesting commentary will give us an insight into the history of the area. There will be time to browse around Llangollen, before visiting the attractive lakeside town of Bala.
Tuesday Our day starts in the charming city of Chester with a tranquil thirty minute cruise on the River Dee including commentary. There will be time for lunch in the lovely city before a visit to the award-winning Ness Botanic Gardens. Founded in 1898 this horticultural collection has show gardens, a Victorian style potager and an Alpine House.
Wednesday Liverpool will be our destination today, we enjoy the attractively renovated area of the Royal Albert Dock and take in the famous waterway on a fifty minute Mersey River Explorer Cruise. Later we move onto the delightful Port Sunlight, the village founded by ‘soap king’ William Lever for his workers. Our visit includes admission to the Port Sunlight Museum and the Edwardian Worker’s Cottage.
Thursday Today our coach takes us to the second smallest city in the UK, St Asaph. There will be time for morning coffee and to explore the compact but important Cathedral before we head to the coast. Llandudno was once a Victorian resort and is still a wonderful place to while away an afternoon.
Friday After breakfast we leave Wales and make the homeward journey to Cornwall.
